They say the groundhog saw his shadow,
somewhere a porcupine was hired, and somewhere else a gopher,
here in Ontario the groundhog saw his shadow.

I see melting snow, a January thaw just as February,
and prayer flags wave their greeting,

inviting celebration of new light,
a grandson soon to be born,
 job possibilities, opportunities,

surrounded by terminal buds daring

 notice the fullness within,
light shines changing shadows
form in silver grey, orange, yellow, red and brown.

I am reminded of the light over Mount Warring, so
similar, so very different, ever changing,
calling forth notice, new dawn
